I drove all the way to surat to bring this story to you. So finally, it’s official tesla will come to india, they’ve set up an office in bangalore and they will produce and sell cars here to give you a flavor of what to expect. We have this here with us. The insane model x, with its crazy, crazy, falcon wing doors, hit celebration mode, and this is what happens. Applause, Music Applause, Music have to say someone at tesla has a great sense of humor, Music Applause. Music Applause also different, is how you get going to start all. You need to do is put your foot on the brake, which even closes the driver’s door and then select d on the mercedes benz like stock, and all you have to do is drive away, there’s no starter button. The driving experience is quite unique. You’Re sat in this bubble, glass, cockpit and it even has helicopter like sun visors that click into place magnetically. Now this 2018 model x 100d has a power output of 518 horsepower the most powerful 2021 model. The blade makes 1020 now with the road ahead: empty i’m. Gon na get my first sort of taste of the acceleration of the eggs Applause, wow it’s, just taken off and it’s sustaining Music crazy. This is pretty incredible: electric cars, no they’re, not as dull as they’re made out to be i’m. Sorry, i just have to do that again. Music just throws you back in the seat and then acceleration is sustained, pretty well wow that’s a big number time to slow down, and this massive talk is just addictive.
It’S, like falling downhill Applause. A quick vbox run with the car in standard mode proves how quick the tesla is. 0 100 comes up in just 4.4 seconds and that’s well into performance suv territory. Can you imagine what the 1000 horsepower model x will be like now pulling the x hard does have an effect on the range the interesting bit is you can see the range drop every single time you do that Applause then there’s the refinement. Of course. The great part about any electric, even a big heavy one like this, is that when you’re cruising it’s, absolutely silent, in fact, you can hear me even if i whisper it’s that refined all you hear are the tires and the creak of the leather seats. There is a bit of wine to the motor, and when you put your foot down, it becomes a bit louder, but it’s, not a bad, sound it’s, not something you dislike. It in fact adds to the whole experience. Applause, despite being an electric. The controls are also nicely weighted and they feel pretty natural fraud. It’S bulk, the x is pretty easy to drive. You don’t feel the size as much the steering is nice and direct and after a couple of minutes, it just feels like a regular car handling. However, is inert: the model x has bodied all well under control and for all its bulk. It feels relatively light on its feet. Still this isn’t an suv that guards you into cornering harder and faster, in fact up the pace in corners and it sort of starts feeling uncomfortable despite having air suspension, the model x’s ride is also firm.
Now, with that massive battery between the wheels and all that weight pressing down, the suspension has to be stiff enough to take the weight and that’s the reason for this stiff slightly fidgety ride it isn’t uncomfortable per se, but it’s busy it’s, always on the move and Even small bumps tend to register, especially at low speeds. Unlike most suvs, the model x has a low nose or bonnet, and this is to help with aerodynamic drag and then, since there’s, no big radiator, the nose is clean, and this, along with the low set roof, helps make the x one of the slipperiest suvs around Design is also nice and clean without too many unnecessary details around and those thick daytime running lamps stand out like white kajal around the rear. The design of the x is more bmw, x6, like with a fast back rear. The taillights, however, are rather ordinary and look like they’ve been plucked from someone else’s parts bin truth be told. The x is hardly an off roader when it’s at its normal height. You have to be careful over speed breakers. Luckily, the air springs can raise it to 211 mm, not bad as the x weighs a considerable 2.5 tonnes. A lot of that weight comes from the massive lithium ion battery pack. The bigger battery packs weigh close to 600 kilos. All model x’s get electric four wheel drive a pair of tesla motors at each axle, providing the power and, interestingly, the model x.
Plate gets three motors for 2021. The tesla model x gets a new minimalist dashboard, but that high tech look is carried forward from this original now. The model x is an suv, but the kind of feel you get inside with this panoramic windscreen and the massive tablet up front with the leather and carbon fiber is just very different from anything else. It’S not overtly luxurious, like mercedes or bentley, or something like that. But it’s very different, it’s techy, it’s modern and it has its own charm. Other cool features on the screen include real time: pictograms of the car, with the doors, opening and closing and there’s loads of things here to keep the child in you entertained, and these, of course, are the model x’s insanely great falcon wing doors. Now what they allow. You to do is get in with this kind of hatch. That makes it look like a sci fi movie. As you can see, this is a six seater, with a huge amount of space in between it’s, very comfortable and quite different it’s, almost like sitting in your own business jet. This clearly isn’t your regular luxury suv. Now, as with all six and seven seaters, the third row, isn’t too comfortable you’re sat low, the seat is small and leg room. If you adjust the seat up ahead is just about sufficient, but luckily you get this huge space between the two seats. So if you need to, you can stretch your legs out, so yes, while it is quirky, it does work and it’s.
Quite practical. Tesla’S model x is like no other luxury suv, smooth, easy to drive and in possession of plenty of electric grunt. It is quick and entertaining no, it isn’t an suv that enjoys being cornered hard. The ride is a bit stiff and the cabin isn’t up to quality standards seen on german luxury cars. What makes the model x genuinely refreshing is that it is also very different. The falcon wing doors play a big role. The unique seating position is clever and then there’s that big touchscreen that has so much tech packed in it, makes for a great experience. There’S no clear indication of when the model x will go on sale here or what it will be priced at. We expect a price of around 1.5 crore, but once it’s here, if you’re, looking for something that’s genuinely different, have the ability to install a charger at home and don’t mind dealing with some of its quirks tesla’s out of the box.
